The hoodie bill

Posting this here since there is a claim that the text has been deleted from the oklegislature.gov site. It could be the time of day since Oklahoma legal record servers tend to update at 20:00 CT give or take on a nightly basis.

This has gotten a lot of press. Here is the original link to the rtf file on the ok.gov bill search site: Oklahoma SB13 2015 Regular Session.
Or here is a pdf conversion of that file that you can access 24 hrs a day.
sb13_int_hoodiebill.

This may be of concern to touring bands – while there is on stage exceptions written in the new added language (strike out are proposed deletions, underlines are new text, no mark up is existing law) – if one of my musician friends of this blog is arrested for some piddly crime like smoking a joint – we still have some of the harshest marijuana laws in the nation – they could tack this on. Fines range from $50 to $500, if convicted.

Be wary of laws like this that the media are seizing on. Do your homework before commenting publicly. And these things are usually designed to distract from the real issues in society and facing governments.

(In my test preview, the first link did not work, but as I mentioned it could be the time of day/night. The pdf works.)

About Kirsten Tautfest

Writer. I've done a lot of living in almost 40 years. My first two self-published books in print/Kindle are what I have termed serial soccer fiction. Red Tales is based around a professional soccer team, set in 1998 their inaugural year, and traces the lives of the players, staff, and fans and how they all intertwine and collide for better or for worse.
